For most Kentucky residents, visiting a store or restaurant is a normal and enjoyable daily activity. It goes without saying that no person wants to suffer an injury while visiting his or her favorite store or restaurant. Yet, this is what happens to thousands of people every year across the country. Any public establishment is required by law to keep a safe and hazard-free environment but, unfortunately, personal injury is not uncommon in these places.
Alleged slip and fall
A woman in another state has taken legal action after she allegedly slipped and fell while shopping in a grocery store. According to allegations, the woman was shopping for groceries inside the store when she encountered a wet spot on the floor. The plaintiff said she slipped on the wet spot and fell, suffering injuries.
Personal injury claim
The woman claimed the fall caused her to endure pain, mental anguish, inconvenience and other damages. She alleged that there were no signs or warnings of the dangerous condition. She seeks to hold the store owners responsible over claims that they failed to clean the wet floor, failed to maintain the store and failed to provide warning to customers.
When an individual suffers injuries from a fall, the treatment can be expensive and may cause the person to lose wages due to being away from work. Anyone in Kentucky who suffers personal injury due to the negligence of another party has the right to pursue claims for monetary damages. By contacting an experienced and knowledgeable attorney, victims can obtain much-needed guidance and assistance with navigating a successful lawsuit.
